My Malwarebytes flagged that Zippy site as malicious, just FYI.

I used stainless steel paint as a primer, then a very dusty thin coat of cast blast to tone it down, then a very fine misting of satin black to further darken it.  May not be correct, but it looks good and should last. other than the primer coat, the others are sprayed far away so the paint gets a rough texture and is not smooth.  I did this to the hood latch too. Sorry, I do not have a pic loaded online showing this.

Anything is possible Smiley but that combo was not a factory version.

Hmm, without the original motor, its going to be hard to validate a LOS car is a Z/28.

I agree with joe, just push the tabs back, get a SS hood and regular grill, have them painted to match and install.  Not the Big $$ you expect. Smiley But if the fenders are drilled for the "rallysport" emblem, then changing that to the Camaro SS emblems will be more $$ to fill the holes and blend paint the lower part of the fenders.  Since it is an X55, it will be clear to future buyers that it was not a rally sport.  my $.02

looks original to me!

Yup, just checked, no stamp around the heater box, just on top of the cowl. 05a (really june sometime) L5303xxx

I think mine does not, just the one on top of the cowl, but I will have to check this weekend.  Why the request? PS, my car does not have AC

he means the black plastic terminal protectors on Factory Delco relays.  69s came with clear or black, which one is correct depends on your build date.
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Heater/Air Box seals on: February 04, 2014, 07:58:34 PM
Yes, they tend to warp over time, I had to put a couple extra screws and double up the seals to get it fitting properly.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 69 brake booster with drums on: February 02, 2014, 07:57:39 AM
The power drum master was not available where I looked.  I just put a repro power disc master and booster in my 4 wheel drum Camaro, without a prop valve, works great!  Did have to reuse one hard line from dist block to rear master due to the fittings being different.

Take a piece of string and wrap it around the grommet in the groove and mark it. And do the same for the widest part that sticks out in the trunk above the floor.  Then try the strings on drill bits, you want a drill in between those two measurements Smiley

A buddy got  a very nice 69 Walnut wheel on a Z10 he bought, I treid to buy it for quite some time for my 69 (10b 68 build), but he would not sell.  Finally was able to trade him my 71 cowl air cleaner for it when he bought a BB El C.  Love the way it looks!  I have an original 69 Rosewood stored away for my SS Cheesy

I am leaning towards the walnut too.  I have a GM walnut wheel on mine and it has that same shade.  Original rosewood do photo darker than in person, but not that dark.  Repro rosewoods wheels are more orange in pics than the real ones.

I already know the dealer for my Car, but they went out of business in the 70s or 80s, this info is not going to help me much Sad
